Summer Sailing

Resim
This weekend, 6/7th July, saw the start of the Dartmouth Classic Channel Regatta, with two days of racing outside the harbour. We were there aboard our 43′ Camper and Nicholson ‘Zircon’, fresh from a 2 week refit and looking very smart. We had high hopes that the quality of th boat would make up for our lack of sharp racing skills, however it was not to be! Saturday brought very light winds which made the beat to the windward mark long and tiresome in the strong tide. It was clear not long after the start that the course would be shortened from the original 4 laps, and as it was very few boats even managed to complete 2 before the end of the afternoon. Our maximum boat speed during the race was a heady 3.1 knots which was greeted with utter delight and a celebratory beer. Yacht for Sale It was however perfect conditions to get our spinnaker and asymmetric out their bags for the first time, both of which set very well. Yacht Market The whole fleet was shown up by the grace a

Regattas and Sun

Resim
It has been a busy summer for us here, with the weather playing a large part I am sure. Our purchase of a new boat last winter rather put the pressure on to get her ready for the summer season and take part in some of the fantastic Classic yacht regattas we have on the south coast. Several weeks of stripping and varninshing in the early opart of the season and 2 weeks of hard work in the yard saw our C&N Zircon looking very smart and ready to go racing. Yacht for Sale The Dartmouth Crab regatta was the first stop and with a great turn out of yachts and a very relaxed but well organised programme, it was a great few days of sailing and partying. Unfortunately our racing skills didn’t quite match our expectations and we found ourselves making tea ½ mile downwind of the start line when the 5 minute gun went! Sunday was a little more successful, but the sun made up for everything despite the poor results! Yacht Market The cross channel race to Paimpol was mixed affair and n

Without doubt she’s a classic

Resim
In the last 6 months we have had several owners approach us with boats they wish to sell that are a little out of our comfort zone and do not quite fit our normal remit. The issue for us with these few boats is that they are fibreglass, and being solely brokers of wooden yachts for over 35 years means that taking on a fibreglass yacht is a big step. Boats for Sale When Peter first started Yachts Markt, many of the yachts we were selling were relatively new, but the era of fibreglass had arrived and everybody wanted a yacht in the new material. Fibreglass was expensive but the wooden yachts had dropped in price, and if you sailed into a marina at that time in a 1960’s wooden yacht, people would look and say “poor chap, he can’t afford a modern boat”. Yacht for Sale 40 years later, if you sail into the same marina with the very same boat, people will look and say “he must be doing well, he can afford a wooden boat!” At the start of fibreglass construction the design of yachts

Best boating holiday ideas

Resim
We run through a few sailing and boating holiday options, from beach-based dinghy sailing to cruising flotilla or bareboat options… what could be better than enjoying a week or two on the water? For the sailing obsessed, a holiday on the water is ideal, but if you've never been before, there’s also no better way to introduce beginners to the sport than in warmer climes with expert tuition (see get your family boating in 6 steps). Sailing is also an activity that can be enjoyed by the whole family, from child to pensioner, couples, whole families or individual travelers. Yacht for Sale It's a social sport and a great way to explore a new country. Here are just a few ideas… Yacht Market BEACH BASE SAILING HOLIDAYS Neilson specialises in sailing and skiing holidays and the company has a wide range of beach-based centres. One of the company’s unique offerings is a stay and sail package that consists of a week at a beach base, learning some of the basics, before a week lo

How to Drive a Personal Watercraft

Resim
Driving a personal watercraft isn't as easy as you might imagine, our guide has some handy tips to ensure success and help keep you safe. How do you drive, or ride, a personal watercraft? Well the technology has come a long way in modern PWs (see Jet Skis and personal watercraft: the guide). They now use four-stroke engines instead of the two stroke power plants that polluted the very environment people were out there to enjoy. They now have variable trim systems and electronic “nannies” to help new riders stay out of trouble and improved ergonomics and safety features. Boats for Sale But they are still jet-drive watercraft and that means there is no steering if you’re not on the throttle. Yacht for Sale That’s what gets people into trouble. It’s anathema to what we learn in driver’s education classes in a car and it doesn’t apply to propeller-driven boats, either. To ride one successfully means not “riding over your head,” which means at speeds that are appropriate fo

Stand Up Paddleboards: SUP for fun and fitness

Resim
If you crave more time on the water, check out the quickest way to get out on your local bay, river, or harbor: paddleboarding, also called Stand Up Paddleboard or SUP for short. You’ve probably seen them on your local waterway: people standing on surfboards, propelling themselves forward with a tall paddle, like a 21st century Venetian gondolier. A relatively new sport, stand up paddleboards (or SUPs) have grown rapidly in popularity, why is that? There are three great reasons why this odd-looking sport has taken off along coasts around the world, and they all revolve around easy access to the water. Yacht for Sale Stand up boards are lighter to transport than a kayak, less complicated to operate than an outboard, and far easier to rig than a small sailboat or windsurfer. As one of my sailing friends says about his own paddleboard: “four seconds to rig! Yacht Market In keeping with that easy access theme, you only need a few basic skills to stand up and paddle. So whether y

How to start your kids dinghy sailing

Resim
Getting your kids into dinghy sailing can be hugely rewarding and a great way of introducing them to skills which will stand them in good stead for any pastime on the water. Paula Irish shares her top tips gleaned from the experience of introducing her two children to the sport. Dinghy sailing is a fabulous sport for children, and it can lead to a lifetime's passion... Yacht for Sale if you get it right (for more tips on getting your kids hooked on boating, read Get your family boating in 6 steps). Waders were a last resort when I started helping my children to sail. Hardly a fashion item, but it saves getting cold and wet in wellies or flip flops, it’s simpler than forever repairing scrapes to the boat, and far less stressful than watching a child struggle to launch independently in a breeze. Boats for Sale Rather embarrassingly, at just over 5ft tall, the waders make me look like an Oompa-Loompa. But it raises a smile from the kids on shore, even those nervous at the

How to water ski

Resim
Learning to waterski can be amusing for spectators, but our guide can help you make those first steps as smooth as possible. Learning to water ski is something to which you want to bring a video camera, because no one nails it right out of the gates. Keep those videos so you can laugh at them later, when you’ve progressed a little. Yacht Market But seriously, the usual progression for water skiing is to learn using a pair of skis, then dropping one so you can slalom and then doing deep-water starts with one ski, so you don’t have to go back and chase after the ski you left behind. Yacht for Sale I’ve never heard of one getting stolen or disappearing, but if you’re skiing on a river, it’s not going to stay where you left it. man learning how to water ski THE BASIC EQUIPMENT FOR WATERSKIING Some fundamental information includes having the basic equipment: a serviceable pair of skis, a good ski rope, a personal flotation vest and, well, a boat.

Welcome to the new blog from Yachts Market

Resim
Welcome to the new blog form Yachts Markt. Here we will be writing about the boats, the people and the places that we are involved with, bringing stories of boats we have sold in the past, new boats coming on the market and tales of the people who sail them and who work with them. Yacht Market Yesterday I had an early start in the rain for a meeting in Plymouth with a couple on their 18T Hillyard, Maffick. Yacht for Sale They arrived in Plymouth after an uncomfortable crossing from Vigo across Biscay, which was the last voyage of a journey that has seen them sail over 30,000Nm from Russia to the Caribbean in the last 12 years. Having bought the boat on the East coast in a very sorry state, they took her to Hilyards in Littlehampton and had a new deck and coachroof. the keelbolts were replaced, new rigging, engine out and reconditioned in the living room at home, and the interior largely rebuilt. The boat has been their floating home now for 12 years while exploring right acro

‘PETTIFOX’ is relaunched!

Resim
Last Thursday saw the relaunch of ‘Pettifox’ which is now owned by John and Flick Moody of John Moody Marine Timber. They have been working incredibly hard on her at Baltic Wharf boatyard since they purchased her and she really does look a million dollars, putting lots of other boats on the river to shame! Boats for Sale ‘Pettifox’ was built in 1992 by Peter Martin on the Isles of Scilly to a design by Frenchman Francoise Vivier. Vivier’s boats have become well known in Brittany with strong influences from the traditional working and fishing boats that have been built there for many years. Yacht for Sale She has that typical high bow, lovely sweeping sheer line going aft to the raked transom that falls to a very deep heel with a sharp rise on the keel going forward to a fairly shallow forefoot. These characterisitics made the French boats very seaworthy and dry but also very fast as they sailed on the beautiful planking run going aft and the deep heel. Although she has a gaf

Busy week on the River Dart

Resim
Regatta week is here again in Dartmouth, how do we know? because the fair rolled into town, loads of boats turned up and it’s raining! Sunday and Monday saw the heats and semi finals for the rowing races take place with crews representing every drinking establishment in town racing the slightly cumbersome ‘whalers’ and the slippy ‘blue’ boats from the higher ferry to the lower ferry. Monday was a foul day for rowing with a strong southerly wind and racing flood tide making it a hard pull up the course, but the best crews came through to race in the finals next Friday. Yacht Market This week also saw the arrival of the newly built 3 masted lugger ‘Grayhound’ built by Marcus and Freya down in Millbrook, Plymouth. She is a replica 18th century lugger, and Marcus and Freya plan to do traditional sailing holidays and sail training onboard, starting next spring. Yacht for Sale see their website www.grayhoundluggersailing.com for more information, pictures and stories from the build

Scottish visit

Resim
I was recently reminded that there can be no better sailing grounds in Europe than the West Coast of Scotland. I said this to my friends on board their yacht in Troon Marina but was quickly reminded to qualify my admiration of their home waters with a caveat on the weather and the midges. Crossing over to Hunter’s Quay on the car ferry with the blue mountains of Bute standing high above the blue waters of the Clyde under a bright blue afternoon sky there was nowhere better to be on the water. Boats for Sale They don’t make it easy for passengers on that ferry. No car park, no ticket kiosk, no cafe, no loo, just a ramp alongside the road apparently in the middle of nowhere and an insignificant sign. Yacht for Sale Car parking for a mile either direction is restricted to an hour so it was a pleasant walk in the afternoon sun. Yacht Market I was on my way to see the Reg Freeman motor sailer Skelgoose in the Holy Loch. The same owner also had a fine little Silvers-built mo
